Friends on the Other Side lyrics

FACILIER: Gentlemen! A tip of the hat from Dr. Facilier. How y'all doing?
PRINCE NAVEEN: "Tarot readings, charms, potions. Dreams made real."
FACILIER: Were I a betting man, and I'm not, I stay away from games of chance...
LAWRENCE: Sire!
FACILIER: I'd wager I'm in the company of visiting royalty.
PRINCE NAVEEN: Lawrence. Lawrence! This remarkable gentleman has just read my palm.
LAWRENCE: Or this morning's newspaper. Sire! This chap is obviously a charlatan. I suggest we move on to a less...

FACILIER:
Don't you disrespect me little man!
Don't you derogate or deride!
You're in my world now
Not your world
And I got friends on the other side!

SHADOWS/CHORUS:
He's got friends on the other side...

FACILIER:
That's an echo, gentlemen. Just a little something we have here in Louisiana, a little parlor trick. Don't worry...

Sit down at my table
Put your minds at ease
If you relax it will enable me to do anything I please
I can read your future
I can change it 'round some, too
I'll look deep into your heart and soul
(you do have a soul, don't you, Lawrence?)
Make your wildest dreams come true!

I got voodoo
I got hoodoo
I got things I ain't even tried!
And I got friends on the other side.

SHADOWS/CHORUS:
He's got friends on the other side!

FACILIER:
The cards, the cards, the cards will tell
The past, the present, and the future as well!
The cards, the cards, just take three
Take a little trip into your future with me!

Now you, young man, are from across the sea
You come from two long lines of royalty
(I'm a royal myself on my mother's side)
Your lifestyle's high
But your funds are low
You need to marry a lil' honey whose daddy got dough!

Mom and dad cut you off, huh playboy?
Now y'all gotta get hitched, but hitchin' ties you down.
You just wanna be free.
Hop from place to place.

But freedom... takes green!
It's the green, it's the green, it's the green you need
And when I looked into your future
It's the green that I see!

On you little man, I don't want to waste much time
You been pushed around all your life
You been pushed around by your mother and your sister and your brother.
And if you was married...
You'd be pushed around by your wife
But in your future, the you I see
Is exactly the man you always wanted to be!

Shake my hand.
Come on boys.
Won't you shake the poor sinner's hand?

Yes...
Are you ready?

SHADOWS/CHORUS:
Are you ready?

FACILIER:
Are you ready?
Transformation central!

SHADOWS/CHORUS:
Transformation central!

FACILIER:
Reformation central!

SHADOWS/CHORUS:
Reformation central!

FACILIER:
Transmogrification central!
Can you feel it?
You're changin'
You're changin'
You're changin', all right!
I hope you're satisfied
But if you ain't
Don't blame me!!
You can blame my friends on the other side!

SHADOWS/CHORUS:
You got what you wanted!
But you lost what you had!

Hush...

FACILIER: How am I ever going to pay back my debt? Friends.
FRIENDS ON THE OTHER SIDE: Are you ready?
FACILIER: No! I'm not ready at all! In fact, I got lots more plans.
FRIENDS ON THE OTHER SIDE: Are you ready?
FACILIER: This is just a minor setbackin a major operation. As soon as I whip up another spell, we'll be back in business! I still got that froggy prince locked away! I just need a little more time. No, please! Just a little more time! I promise I'll pay y'all back! I promise!
